Reliable Remote Access For a Retailer?

Just joined the IPVM, what a great community you have!

We have retail stores in several cities and we are looking for reliable remote surveillance solution. I have read that Axis/ACC is unstable, cloud AVHS has not been very successful, Port Forwarding is difficult and uPNP is unstable etc and the list goes on :)

We'd prefer not to have NVRs at each location, because we don't have IT support available and the stores are wide-spread throughout the country.

What is the best remote access solution in your opinion?
